Expiring Claims!

I hope everyone had a very Happy New Year! I have some claim info that needs to be updated.

"Sanctuary" by raven_moon due by Jan 2nd
"Vampire Diaries" by kalina_blue due by Jan 4th

If your claim has expired and you would like an extension, I will still accept them for up to one week after your claim has expired. For example, on Jan 9 "Sanctuary" will be expired for good.

Now here are some other goodies:
I am actually getting ready to be out of town for about a week. I will check back but infrequently. Just know that I will get back to you as soon as I can. :)

Thank you!

ETA: Our layout contest had 0 entries. Really? No one wanted to help make a layout??? :( I'm saddened by this. If you are still interested, please leave a comment. Thank you!

Layout Entries/Rules

Please submit your entries here in this form.

Your entry should look like this:
Username: Lightningbeauty
Layout URL:

Magic Word?: Peppermint Sticks

1) Images should be a reasonable size. No larger than 500 X 300 px.
2) All layouts should be generic in nature. No specific movies/characters/pairings/etc. Save them for the challenges. :)
3) Each user may enter two(2) entries. They must be in separate comments and must be different. (Duh.)
4) No usernames may appear in the layout. You will be credited on the User Info page.
5) Be creative! Everything is worth at least one shot right?

New Layout Design Contest

Well, this has happened a bit faster than I'd hoped for, but such is life. Our beautiful fall layout has been disconnected (exceeding bandwith or something). Now, I don't know about some of you but I am not as familiar with HTML codes and all that jazz. And what ended up happening in my attempts to fix the situation...well, I just made it worse.

Issue #1
Is there anyone who is fabulous at coding who could teach me what means what? Or just a copy and paste situation would also work wonders. :) That way we can have SOMETHING to look at while the contest is running.

Issue #2
We're having a CONTEST! Please submit your banners to this post after reading the rules located there. The contest will run for two weeks. December 6 - 20, 2010. Then we will have voting open for one week. On December 27, I will announce the new winner and get that banner up!

Please feel free to ask any questions at this post since the entry/rule post will have screened comments.

Thank you and Happy Designing!

Last of the Changes from the Mod

I know, you're sick of me making changes. But it was recently suggested (and I agree) that we want to avoid any future spamming. Simply put, I am now moderating all posts. No big deal, most everything will be approved. We never really had a problem with this before. Just call it a precautionary measure. :)

Happy Iconing!

....umm...I mean Thanksgiving (to my US friends) ;)

Claims Post

Make your claims here! Use this form, please:

New Full Time Mod

Hello everyone!

Well, I hate the reason that brought me back, but I love the opportunity to start over. The recent spam-bot only posted to non-active communities and it drew to my attention the fact that the last active post in this community was made over 1 year ago. ...Oops. My bad. Missed that whole "community stopped being active" thing.

So I'm here to see if we should correct it! Now, please be patient with me as before tonight I was only moderating the Hall of Fame post. ( one tell anyone that I let it go when the community died.) So now that I'm holding all the reigns in my hands (HA HA HA.../evil laugh) I would love to see some new life come into this community.

First Order of Business:
I will be making a new Claims Post to post your claims to. We're going to pretend that no one has done a claim. :) Well, not exactly, I'm not deleting your old claims or anything. I'm just giving everyone a fresh start. If you had a claim that you didn't finish. If you had a claim that you didn't like and want to re-do. If you never picked a claim because you were too shy/busy/whatever then PICK IT NOW!
Q: Can I pick a claim I never posted and post it as soon as I'm approved?
A: As long as the icons are new (ie. never posted to a comm before) I'm good. :)

Q: What if I didn't read the rules?
A: Well, you really should do that first. I'm not changing the rules as of right now. The old rules stand. However, I will be taking suggestions for...

Second Order of Business
Revamping the 10X10 sets. Any thoughts/questions/suggestions/general comments and the like are well appreciated. Thank you very much.

Third Order of Business
I would like to host a layout contest. Let's give our journal a little TLC, shall we? Nothing says "new start" like "new layout".

If you have any other questions, just let me know! :)

ETA: I've also opened claims to include animated movies/characters/pairings. :) Still no anime as of right now (there are other comms devoted to that), but animation is now allowed.
